It kinda looks too good for $1.19, so I am cautious of buying it.

There are actually two other threads on this game -- there seems to be a glitch in the search mechanism that is showing no results when you use the name. You can find it by searching for "Johnston." In any event, here's the thread:

And yes, it's pretty awesome, particularly if you like Daniel Johnston's music or lo-fi indie music in general. It's definitely not a traditional platformer, but it's beautifully designed and animated, and there's even a simple but rather poignant story to it. One of my better recent buys.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

It is that good - though, as I said above, not a traditional platformer.
